If the wheel locked when trying to turn the ignition, that is not uncommon. Just simply turn and hold the steering wheel the opposite way, then you will be able to turn the ignition on.

My car locked steering wheel and can't turn the key, can you please help me


Hi Dev:
First, let's confirm that you are using the correct key.
Next, the key won't turn unless the transmission is in Neutral, or Park.
If the wheels were under tension, maybe turned against a curb, when the vehicle was stopped, there may be pressure against the steering lock mechanism, and that may be stopping the ignition from turning.
Try turning the steering wheel to releive the presssure and see if you can jiggle the shift lever. That should release the ignition.
Hope this helps.

1999 Volvo S40 cannot remove key


What make vehicle ? Most all vehicles have a safety system .Don't try an force anything you'll break it !
Electronic Park Lock (EPL)/Ignition Lock Cylinder Control Actuator: If the vehicle is equipped with automatic transmission and a floor mounted console gear shift, it has an ignition lock cylinder control actuator system in the steering column. The ignition lock cylinder control actuator purpose is to prevent the ignition key from being turned to the OFF position when the transmission is in any position other than PARK and the vehicle may still be moving. The column ignition lock system consists of an ignition lock cylinder control actuator, and a park position switch that is located in the automatic transmission shift lock control switch. The ignition lock cylinder control actuator contains a pin that is spring loaded to mechanically prevent the ignition key cylinder from being turned to the lock position when the vehicle transmission is not in the PARK position. If vehicle power is lost, and/or the transmission is not in the PARK position the operator will not be able to turn the ignition key to the lock position and will not be able to remove the ignition key from the column. They also have this on column mounted shifters !

Ignition stuck key won't turn to start car!


Gear shift is not totally in the park position - had the same problem with a 2011 Acura TL - a rubber band kept the gear shift lever from totally seating in the park position.

Stuck eldorado key in DTS ignition now car won't start


Make sure your steering wheel isn't locked. Sometimes a key won't turn until you jiggle the wheel while trying to turn the key.

I parked my 95 Lexus 400 this morning, turned the wheels to the left to make them straight. I went back to start my car, and the key will not turn at all. I can barely get the wheels to turn. PLEASE HELP.


If the ignition lock cylinder hasn't broken internally, try this:
grasp the steering wheel. Apply turning pressure (like trying to turn the wheel) while turning the key. Key should turn. If not, your ignition lock cylinder may be defective.

2002 alero key won't turn in ignition


If car is an automatic: Try making sure the shifter is totally in Park and shake the wheel a little...sometimes it's not all the way in gear or sometimes the steering wheel lock systam don't acknowlege that the key is in all the way.

If manual transmission: Make sure your clutch is fully engeaged when trying to start the car...meaning pushed all the way down with the brake on!

If none of these help...hopefully someone else can help you then....those were just some of the things I know of!

Key stuck in ignition and cannot get key out


try turning the steering wheel off it's lock. The wheel should turn a tiny bit between stops and if you turn it to the middle it should release the key. If this doesn't wrok mae sure that the transmission gear shift is fully engaged in Park (assuming an automatic transmission)
